Just one week remains prior to Major League Baseball's signing deadline for Cal Poly baseball recruit Logan Webb, who told KSBY that his decision remains 'up in the air' between coming to his dream school this fall and signing a contract with the San Francisco Giants.
The Rocklin High graduate was drafted in the fourth round of Major League Baseball's amateur draft as the 118th pick and has yet to make a decision between playing professionally now or continuing with his original plan of coming to play for Coach Larry Lee in San Luis Obispo.
"I have a very good relationship with the coaches at Cal Poly and it's been my dream school for quite a bit now," Webb said. "If I went there, I'd want to go there and win a national championship. Every week I'm talking to Coach Eager and every couple weeks I'm talking to Coach Lee so it's going to be a quite a ride this next week and a half."
Webb and the Giants have until July 18, Major League Baseball's signing deadline, to agree on a deal. Webb wouldn't disclose how far apart he and the Giants were on a potential deal, though he did say he has a specific number in mind that he's looking for from the club.
"No pressure at all, they're just as understanding as anybody else," Webb added about his experience dealing with the Giants. "I'd say it's been stressful, but it's also been fun. How can I not like what's happening?"
The right-handed pitcher is coming off a senior season where he posted a 0.48 ERA and struck out 74 batters. He says his decision could come down to the final hours.
"I think I'm pretty close it," Webb said. "I know the deadline's coming up pretty soon for guys to sign so it'll be in the next week or two that I'll make my final decision."
